Brenda Boone-Cove, chairman of United Way of Coastal Georgia, recently presented Ms. Kay Hampton with the 2015 Volunteer of the Year award for Glynn County at the Brunswick-Golden Isles Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner. During her time in the Golden Isles she has volunteered and supported many organizations including Alszheimer’s of Flynn, Coastal Medical Access Project (CMAP), Glynn Community Crisis Center, Magnolia Manor, Rotary Club, College Place United Methodist Church and United Way’s Community Investment Committee. Most recently, Kay’s efforts were greatly appreciated by the staff of Glynn Community Center during the three month interim while the agency was seeking a new Executive Director. Outside of volunteering and making an impact on local non profits in our community, Kay is the Associate Vice President of College of Coastal Georgia. Kay is a leader in every sense of the word and has the ability to positively impact every organization with which she is involved.
Norma Bailey was recently presented with the Volunteer of the Year award at the McIntosh Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner. She was nominated by Petula Gomillion, Executive Director of Atlantic Area CASA, Inc. for going above and beyond the scope of a CASA volunteer. She has helped to find parents employment and assisted them with resources to get a car repaired. Norma has impacted CASA by being dedicated, committed and reliable. She has always stepped up to take cases when other volunteers had too much on their plate or needed to step off the rotation. Petula said, “Ms. Bailey is a wonderful person, whose heart is big and she is so deserving of being recognized for her passion for children and her volunteerism through the CASA program.” Thank you Norma for changing lives in McIntosh County!
